HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has come under under renewed attack as it goes ahead with plans to close offices across Scotland's north and north-east, putting close to 120 jobs at risk.

A HMRC spokesman accused the Public and Commercial Services Union of scaremongering over prospective job losses and cuts in services, insisting no redundancies were being announced. Its intention was to avoid job losses wherever 'reasonably possible', according to The Press and Journal.

Offices closing include the only two in Moray, at Elgin and Buckie; one of two offices in Inverness, at Longman House; and offices at Wick, Oban, Rothesay, Dunoon, Perth, Peterhead, Stirling and Falkirk.

The only offices to remain open will be at Ullapool, Lerwick and River House in Inverness and both offices in Dundee - at Caledonian House and Sidlaw House - have been saved. Ruby House in Aberdeen was also excluded from the review.
